Credibility Assurance Team. Change in name.. no change in service!!

GiveIndia believes that our Listing Team's efforts have always been and will be towards ensuring that monies raised through our platform reaches the end beneficiaries through credible NGOs in a transparent manner. The team, therefore, goes well beyond the purview of just listing NGOs but also guarantees continued compliance of our NGO partners through several checks and balances built into the system.

We believe our team name should communicate this to our donors and NGO partners and therefore our
Listing Team is now re-christened as the Credibility Assurance Team.
